Expenditures of M.F.T. Funds for Engineering Author- 
ized (Improvement of S. State St. from W. 61st 
St. to W. 65th St. and W. 63rd St. from 
S. Wentworth Av. to S. Indiana Av.). 

The Committee on Finance submitted a report rec- 
ommending that the following proposed ordinance 
submitted therewith do pass: 

Whereas, S. State Street, a Federal Aid Route, 
provides direct access to important highways south 
of Chicago for a large amount of truck and pas- 
senger automobile traffic originating from or 
destined to the heart of the City of Chicago in 
addition to carrying a double-track streetcar line 
and local vehicular traffic ; and 

Whereas, W. 63rd Street, an Arterial Street, 
is also a Federal Aid Route, is the longest east- 
and-west section-line street in Chicago, carries a 
large volume of vehicular traffic in addition to 
streetcar traffic and serves the Midway Airport; 
and 

Whereas, The existing subways under the tracks 
of the Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne and Chicago Rail- 
way, and the New York Central Railroad Company 
in State Street south of 63rd Street now provide 
for a roadway only 40' wide under the Pittsburgh, 
Fort Wayne and Chicago Railway Company's tracks 
and two roadways each only 20' wide separated by 
the center columns under the New York Central 
Railroad Company's tracks thereby forming a seri- 
ous bottleneck and traffic hazard impairing the 
efficiency of the roadway in State Street which has 
been widened to a minimum width of 60' between 
Wacker Drive and 79th Street, a distance of 9 
miles; and the existing subways under the tracks 
of the New York Central Railroad, the Pittsburgh, 
Fort Wayne and Chicago Railway and the Chicago, 
Rock Island and Pacific Railroad in W. 63rd Street 
west of State Street provide two roadways only 
19' 1" wide which leave only one restricted lane 
for vehicular traffic in each direction outside of 
the streetcar tracks under these structures thereby 
forming a serious bottleneck and traffic hazard on 
63rd Street ; and 

Whereas, Additional traffic hazards are caused 
by the sharp curvature in the alignment of the 
approach roadways and streetcar tracks which is 
due to the eccentric location of the structures in 
both streets; and 

Whereas, The Engineering Board of Review in 
its report of December 8, 1949 states, "The Engi- 
neering Board of Review concurs in the views of 
the Division of Bridges and Viaducts insofar as 
making studies and preparing estimate of cost of 



reconstructing the underpasses of the N.Y.C. just 
west of State Street and the straightening of 63rd 
Street from Indiana Avenue to State Street is con- 
cerned. The Board, therefore, in the addendum to 
its report on State Street (Report No. B.R. 51B) 
recommended that $20,000.00 from M. F. T. funds 
be allocated to the Bridge Division for studies, 
preparation of plans and necessary proceedings be- 
fore the Commerce Commission for the underpasses 
of the N.Y.C. and Pennsylvania Railroads in State 
Street and the N.Y.C. underpasses in 63rd Street 
just west of State Street"; therefore.

The communication attached to the foregoing order

Corporation Counsel, and reads as follows: 

"Re : Settlement of claim for damages caused by 
construction of Dearborn Street Subway in the case 
Rothschild vs. City, No. 46-C-9976. 

"Gentlemen — One of the cases pending against 
the City for recovery of damages in the sum of 
Fifteen Thousand ($15,000.00) Dollars alleged to 
have been caused to private property by the con- 
struction of the Dearborn Street Subway is that of 
Beatrice Rothschild vs. City of Chicago, Circuit 
Court of Cook County No. 46-C-9976. 

"The property involved is situated at 1332 Mil- 
waukee Avenue and 1287-93 North Hermitage Ave- 
nue with a frontage of twenty -five feet ( 25 ft. ) on 
Milwaukee Avenue and a depth of one hundred feet 
(100 ft.) on North Hermitage Avenue. It is im- 
proved with a two-story and basement brick build- 
ing occupied by a store on the first floor and a loft 
on the second floor. 

"Prior to the construction of the subway. North 
Hermitage Avenue extended south from its inter- 
section with Milwaukee Avenue passed plaintiff's 
premises and thence connected with a system of 
other streets. Vehicular and pedestrian traffic had 
continuous and uninterrupted use of North Her- 
mitage Avenue in approaching plaintiff's property 
at the corner of Milwaukee Avenue. The property 
being located at an intersection was accessible to 
traffic from two public streets. 

"During the year 1946 and 1947, a subway incline 
structure was constructed in and adjacent to the 
alley in the rear of the premises fronting on Mil- 
waukee Avenue. It connects the present elevated 
structure with the Dearborn Street Subway and 
crosses North Hermitage Avenue at a point approx- 
imately forty-five feet (45 ft.) south of the south 
line of plaintiff's property. At this point, a part of 
said structure consists of a solid reinforced con- 
crete wall extending in height about seven feet (7 
ft.) above the roadway surface and permanently 
blocks off North Hermitage Avenue as a thorough- 
fare leading to plaintiff's property. 

"Plaintiff's claim is based upon the decrease in 
the market value of her property by reason of cut- 
ting off access thereto by the public improvement 
and depriving her of the value of the corner in-_ 
fluence. 

"After extended negotiations with plaintiff's at- 
torney and failure to agree on a settlement figure, a 
pre-trial conference was had before Judge Harry M. 
Fisher of the Circuit Court of Cook County. Judge 
Fisher considers it to the best interest of the City 
to settle this case for Three Thousand Five Hun- 
dred ($3,500.00) Dollars. The property was ex-

nue and southerly along S. Stony Island Avenue,

Whereas, The construction and opening of these 
portions of the comprehensive superhighway sys- 
tem will be of great and lasting benefit to the people 
of the entire State of Illinois and the County of 
Cook as well as the City of Chicago ; and 

Whereas, The magnitude and cost of the above 
improvements make it impossible for any of the 
parties hereto alone to finance and complete them 
within a reasonable period of time, and it is there- 
fore the intent of the parties hereto that the entire 
cost of the projects hereinabove described shall be 
shared equally by the parties hereto; 

Now, therefore, in consideration of the premises 
and the mutual undertakings of the parties hereto 
and in conformity with all applicable laws, it is 
agreed : 

1. The City, County and State jointly shall 
construct those portions of the Comprehensive 
Superhighway System as described hereinabove, 
each party to assume one-third of the total cost 
thereof. In determining the pro rata share of 
costs to each party hereto, all portions of the 
Comprehensive Superhighway System described 
hereinabove shall be taken into consideration and 
it shall be consistent with the intent of this agree- 
ment that one party hereto may pay more than 
one-third of the total cost of any portion or 
portions of the Comprehensive Superhighway 
System and may assume the responsibility for 
the award of contracts for the construction of 
and for the acquisition of right-of-way for more 
than one-third of the total of the physical parts 
of the said portions of the Comprehensive Super- 
highway System, provided only that the total 
cost thereof shall be shared equally by the parties 
to this agreement. In equalizing the said total 
cost, payments in cash may be made by one party 
hereto to either or both of the other parties 
hereto. 

2. The specific portions of the work to be 
undertaken by each party hereto shall be agreed 



upon mutually by the Commissioner of Subways

hereby authorized to enter into all agreements 
and exchanges of memoranda, both informal and 
formal, which are necessary to carry out the 
provisions of this agreement. 

3. The total cost of right-of-way shall include 
the cost of right-of-way acquired by the State 
and by the City and County, with the approval 
of the State, prior to the effective date of this 
agreement, and the cost of right-of-way acquired 
in accordance with the provisions of this agree- 
ment. 

4. The total cost of the aforesaid portions of 
the Comprehensive Superhighway System shall 
include further:

(b) Settlement of claims for damages result- 
ing from changes in existing street grades

poses for which it was designed. 

The costs as specified in this Section 4 herein- 
above shall be shared equally by and between the 
parties hereto; provided however, as a condition 
precedent to the sharing of the aforesaid costs 
that within ten (10) days from the date of re- 
ceipt by any of the parties hereto of a notice of a 
claim for damages or of an action instituted 
therefor, whichever shall be the earlier, the party 
or parties hereto receiving such notice shall com- 
municate the same, in writing, to the other party 
or parties hereto; and provided further that no 
claims for any of the damages as aforesaid shall 
be settled without the written consent of all the 
parties hereto and any party or parties not so 
notified shall be released from its share of the 
particular claim. 

5. For the purposes of this agreement, the cost 
of acquisition for said right-of-way shall be com- 
puted as an amount equal to six per cent (6%) 
of the cost of land, improvements and damages. 
The said Commissioner of Subways and Super- 
highways, Superintendent of Highways and Chief 
Highway Engineer shall, at intervals of not to 
exceed one year from the effective date hereof, 
review the ratio of the actual total cost of 
acquisition to the total cost of land, improve- 
ments and damages during the previous year and 
when necessary shall, by mutual agreement 
based on such review, revise the said percentage 
of the cost of land, improvements and damages 
allowed herein for the cost of acquisition which 
revised percentage shall be applicable for the 
next succeeding interval.

cost.

with the City of Chicago providing for the furnish- 
ing and instalHng of ventilating equipment for the 
State and Dearborn Street subways. Plaintiffs per- 
formed the work required in the State Street sub- 
way and partially performed the work required in 
the State Street subway and partially performed 
the work required under the contract in the Dear- 
born Street subway until June 1944. Due to the 
scarcity of materials required to complete the 
Dearborn Street subway and the restrictions im- 
posed by the War Production Board during the war 
period, the Department of Subways and Super- 
highways, on November 30, 1942 advised the con- 
tractors "not to erect any louver operators in the 
Dearborn Street subway at this time, as we feel 
that if these units, which consist of a gear trans- 
mission in a cast iron case with a fractional horse- 
power motor, were installed now, they would de- 
teriorate, as they might stand for a year or two 
without being operated." The contractors were di- 
rected to deliver to the City of Chicago that ma- 
terial for storage. On account of the delay in- 
volved, the City of Chicago, by Council order passed 
on December 1, 1943 (C.J.p. 902) released to the 
contractors $16,700.00 of the reserve then held 
under the terms of the contract, and authorized the 
Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways to 
pay the additional sum of $200.00 to cover cost of 
insurance and storage charges. 

"The contractors served notice on the City of 
Chicago on June 1, 1945 that they elected to re- 
scind the contract for the reason that the "City of 
Chicago has unreasonably delayed us in the per- 
formance of the contract for a period of more than 
two years." They took the position that the letter 
of November 30, 1942 constituted a stop order. The 
City of Chicago never recognized this attempted 
rescission because the time for performance was 
extended by the City at the request of the con- 
tractors and by the conduct of the parties. 

"On April 22, 1946 the contractors filed suit in 
the Circuit Court of Cook County to recover $35,- 
142.48 as damages. Upon a trial had in October 
1947, the court rendered a finding and judgment 
in favor of the City of Chicago at the close of the 
plaintiffs' case. The trial court held that the con- 
tract was merely suspended during the period when 
materials were not available and that the plaintiffs 
had no right to rescind. As stated above, this judg- 
ment of the Circuit Court was affirmed by the Ap- 
pellate Court." 



The following is the opinion of the Appellate Court :

Appellants, 

V. 



Appeal from Circuit 
Court, Cook County. 



City of Chicago, a Munici- 
pal Corporation, 

Appellee. 

Mr. Justice Friend Delivered the Opinion 
of the Court. 

Plaintiffs brought suit to recover, upon a quan- 
tum meruit, the reasonable value of the work and 
labor performed and material furnished by them 
to defendant under a written contract between the 
parties known as M-3, dated October 24, 1941, for 
the furnishing and installation of ventilating equip- 
ment for the State Street and Dearborn Street 



subways in Chicago. The complaint consists of 
two causes of action, in the first of which plaintiffs 
sought to recover the fair, reasonable and market 
value of all labor and materials furnished, and in 
the second they asked for damages for breach of 
contract by the defendant. In the course of the 
trial, plaintiffs elected to stand on the first cause 
of action, and thereupon they withdrew the second 
cause of action, and all evidence relating thereto 
was stricken from the record. At the close of plain- 
tiffs' case, upon motion of the defendant, the court 
found in favor of the defendant, and entered judg- 
ment accordingly. Plaintiffs have taken an appeal. 

Two voluminous printed documents constitute 
the contract between the parties: one is described 
as "Contract Requirements and Contract Plans for 
Ventilation Equipment, Contract M-3, for the State 
Street and Dearborn Street Subways, issued by 
City of Chicago, Department of Subways and Super- 
highways, August, 1941" ; the other document is 
entitled "Standard Specifications for Subway Con- 
struction, General Conditions — Section I, General 
Conditions — Section II, issued by City of Chicago, 
Department of Subways, February, 1940." Both of 
these documents were received in evidence, and to- 
gether with the testimony adduced upon the hear- 
ing and various letters that passed between the 
parties, constitute the record in the case. 

Plaintiffs as contractors agreed to perform the 
work required under contract M-3 which included 
furnishing and installing ventilating fans, electri- 
cally operated louvers, miscellaneous steel and tem- 
perature-recording instruments for the State Street 
and Dearborn Street subways. They were required 
by written notice of the defendant on November 7, 
1941 to commence work not later than on November 
12, 1941. On November 30, 1942, after the work 
had been in progress for approximately one year, 
defendant notified plaintiffs in writing (plaintiffs' 
exhibit 7) to discontinue certain aspects of the 
work in the Dearborn Street subway. Inasmuch 
as the construction of exhibit 7 constitutes one of 
the principal controversies at issue, we set out 
the pertinent portion thereof as follows: "You 
are hereby instructed not to erect any louver oper- 
ators in the Dearborn Street Subway at this time, 
as we feel that if these units, which consist of a 
gear transmission in a cast iron case with a frac- 
tional horse power motor, were installed now, they 
would deteriorate, as they might stand for a year 
or two without being operated. We will advise you 
at some future date, when the operators are to be 
installed. This does not apply to the louvers them- 
selves, which you will erect as soon as possible. 
You will, therefore, deliver the Dearborn Street 
louver operators and operating mechanisms, such 
as cranks, forks and pipe linkage, to our warehouse 
after we have made an inspection of same at your 
plant in Chicago. You will install the louvers them- 
selves, complete with frames, shafts and bearings 
in the Dearborn Street Subway, at this time. ""•"" In 
your reply, please state whether this arrangement 
meets with your approval. The cost of storing the 
Dearborn Street operators will be paid for by the 
City of Chicago." 

December 8, 1942 plaintiffs replied to this com- 
munication as follows: "In answer to your letter 
of November 30, 1942, it is our understanding that 
the Dearborn Street Subway may stand idle for a 
year or two, therefore tying up the balance of our 
contract. We feel some arrangement should be 
made to take care of the balance of reserve in- 
volved, plus any cost to us incurred by postpone- 
ment of the Dearborn Street Subway." 

Subsequently, on March 5, 1943, plaintiffs again 



5748 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



January 20, 1950 



sent a letter to Charles E. De Leuw, acting chief 
engineer, department of subways, as follows: "We 
are advised that after the completion of a certain 
portion of our work upon the Dearborn Street Sub- 
way, no further material is to be furnished nor 
labor performed upon this subway. *** By this 
decision on your part we are confronted with a 
number of problems. ***" These problems, per- 
taining to ventilating fans, electrically operated 
louvers, miscellaneous steel and temperature-re- 
cording instruments, were treated in detail, and 
plaintiffs concluded their letter by saying that "in 
view of the uncertainty as to when the Dearborn 
Street Subway is to be completed, due to the fact 
that we are informed that the postponement is in- 
definite, we believe that we are entitled to be ad- 
vised as to your attitude with respect to each of 
the matters set forth ***. Will you please let us 
hear from you in due course." 

In its letter of May 19, 1943, defendant sent the 
following reply: "Your letters dated December 8, 
1942 and March 5, 1943, referred to the delay in 
the completion of your work on the Dearborn Street 
Subway and requested advice as to our plans for 
the continuation of this work. As you know, this 
situation has arisen because of restrictions imposed 
by the War Production Board in the procurement 
of critical materials. However, it is our desire to 
complete all of the work under your contract at 
the earliest possible moment. Article 15 — Unavoid- 
able Delays — General Conditions — Section II of 
Standard Specifications for Subway Construction, 
provides: 'Should the contractor be obstructed or 
delayed in the commencement, prosecution or com- 
pletion of the work under the contract by any act 
or delay of the City, including any delay due to 
not acquiring necessary right-of-way within the 
limits of the work specified *** war *** then the 
times fixed for the completion of the work to the 
extent specified shall be extended for a period 
equivalent to the time lost by reason of any of the 
aforesaid causes mentioned in this article. No such 
allowance of time shall be made, however, unless 
notice in writing of a claim therefor is presented 
to the Commissioner before the last day of each 
succeeding calendar month ***.' Because of the 
unpredictable extent of the period which you may 
be delayed in completing the work under this con- 
tract, it is not deemed necessary that the specified 
claim be filed by you each month, but it is essential 
that you file an initial claim requesting an exten- 
sion of time in which to complete the work. Such 
action on your part is prerequisite to our clearing 
for payment such items mentioned in your letter 
which may be classified as delay damages under 
the terms of the contract." 

July 7, 1943 plaintiffs addressed the following 
communication to defendant: "We acknowledge re- 
ceipt of your letter of May 19, 1943. By reason 
of your decision to delay to an indefinite time in 
the future the completion of the work on the Dear- 
born Street Subway and in accordance with Article 
15, Unavoidable Delay, General Conditions, Section 
2 of Standard Specifications for Subway Construc- 
tion, we give you this notice, in writing, of our 
claim." The letter then sets forth in considerable 
detail the nature of plaintiffs' claim, and concluded 
by saying that "when the City determines to renew 
the construction of the Dearborn Street Subway, 
we should be paid for all of the items as provided 
in Article 15 of the General Conditions as well 
as a percentage for overhead and profit on such 
additional work due to such delay." 

On July 16, 1943 defendant wrote plaintiffs as 
follows: "From the content of your letter of July 



7, 1943 *** it appears that we are not in substantial 
agreement on a number of items in question. In 
order to work this matter out to a satisfactory con- 
clusion, it appears necessary that we hold another 
conference for the purpose of adjusting those items 
on which we are not in agreement. Please advise 
when you will be willing to attend such a con- 
ference." 

At the conference, held July 21, 1943, the parties 
failed to reach an accord, as evidenced by plain- 
tiffs' letter of August 4, 1943 which they concluded 
by saying: "We have carefully and exhaustively 
considered the situation and have come to the con- 
clusion that we must insist upon our claims as 
outlined in our letter to you of July 7, 1943." 

On October 1, 1943 plaintiffs proposed in writing 
"the following as a disposition of our controversy 
with the City respecting our contract : 1. A reason- 
able extension of time to complete our contract, 
which we now request in accordance with provisions 
of Article 15 — General Conditions — Section II — 
Standard Specifications for Subway Construction, 
where, as at present, we have been unavoidably de- 
layed by the act of the City. 2. The City is to 
release to us, within a reasonable time, the sum 
of $16,699.47, being the balance due us on the por- 
tion of the contract known as the State Street 
Subway. 3. The City is to reimburse us for all 
storage and insurance costs on material stored by 
us at your request in the warehouse designated 
by you until the City takes over the storage and 
insurance of such material. 4. All maintenance 
work on all material or equipment furnished by 
us, and which work may be ordered by your de- 
partment, shall be paid on the basis of cost plus 
fifteen percent. 5. Nothing herein contained shall 
constitute or be considered a waiver of any claim 
which we may now have on account of the City's 
delay in the construction of the subways." 

Thereafter the following occurred: (1) the time 
to complete the contract was extended because of 
conditions resulting from the war; (2) on Decem- 
ber 1, 1943 the city council (C.J. p. 902) passed an 
order authorizing the commissioner to pay the con- 
tractors $16,700.00, and that sum was paid to 
them; (3) that council order also authorized the 
commissioner to pay the contractors $200.00 to 
cover their cost of insurance and storage of equip- 
ment, and that sum was paid to the contractors; 
(4) the commissioner agreed to pay the contractors 
for maintenance work on all materials and equip- 
ment furnished by the contractors and ordered by 
the department on the basis of cost plus fifteen per 
cent; and (5) the contractors reserved the right 
on completion of their work to present any claim 
they thought proper for extra compensation on 
account of unavoidable delays based on the provi- 
sions of article 15 of S.S.S.C. 

On June 1, 1945 plaintiffs rescinded their con- 
tract with the city in writing as follows: "You 
are hereby notified that we have elected to rescind 
our contract with the City of Chicago, dated Octo- 
ber 24, 1941, for the furnishing and installation 
of ventilation equipment for the State Street and 
Dearborn Street subways, known as Contract M-3, 
for the reason that the City of Chicago has un- 
reasonably delayed us in the performance of our 
said contract for a period of more than two years, 
whereby we have sustained and are continuing to 
sustain great loss, damage and injury." 

Three days later, on June 4, 1945, Philip Har- 
rington, commissioner of subways, addressed the 
following reply to the letter of rescission: "This 
will acknowledge receipt of your letter of June 1, 
1945, expressing your desire to rescind your con-

tract with the City of Chicago dated October 24, 
1941, for the furnishing and installation of ventila- 
tion equipment for the State Street and Dearborn 
Street Subways, known as Contract M-3. We are 
forwarding your letter to the Corporation Counsel 
of the City of Chicago for a legal opinion in this 
matter." Harrington, further replying, on June 18, 
1945, sent plaintiffs a copy of an opinion from the 
corporation counsel wherein he reviewed the salient 
provisions of the agreement, the correspondence 
between the parties and the events that followed, 
and reached the conclusion that plaintiffs did not 
have the right to rescind the contract, and added 
that if they insisted on so doing, "they should be 
advised that the City will regard this stand as an 
anticipatory breach *** and hold the Contractor 
and their Surety on the performance bond responsi- 
ble for any damage resulting therefrom." 

The total amount of all labor and materials fur- 
nished by plaintiffs, plus profit, was $178,265.13, 
of which sum there had been paid to them $143,- 
122.65. They seek to recover upon a quantum 
meruit the sum of $35,142.48, with interest at the 
legal rate from the time the monies allegedly be- 
came due and payable. 

Plaintiffs now construe the letter of November 
30, 1942 (plaintiffs' exhibit 7) as a directive to 
discontinue the performance of the contract as to 
the Dearborn Street subway until some indefinite 
time in the future. They say that such delay was 
not contemplated by the parties and that no specific 
provision was made for delay of such an extent; 
that by directing plaintiffs to stop work in the 
Dearborn street subway defendant breached the 
contract, and when the delay continued for a period 
of more than two years, plaintiffs had the right 
to rescind and to sue for and recover as upon a 
quantum meruit the fair, reasonable and market 
value of all labor and materials furnished, less 
amounts received by them from defendant. How- 
ever, this construction is at variance with that 
which they gave it at the time the letter was written 
and received by them. They were then principally 
concerned with losses incident to the delay, for 
which they wished to interpose a claim against the 
city. The city has never taken the position that 
such claims would not be allowable if the contract 
had not been completed, but it took the position 
that no allowances should be made unless notice in 
writing for an extension of the contract was pre- 
sented in accordance with its terms; and in lieu 
of the provision that a specified claim should be 
filed by plaintiffs each month, the city suggested 
in its letter of May 19, 1943 that it did not con- 
sider it necessary to follow this procedure but that 
it was essential "that you file an initial claim re- 
questing an extension of time in which to complete 
the work. Such action on your part is prerequisite 
to our clearing for payment such items mentioned 
in your letter which may be classified as delay 
damages under the terms of the contract." Plain- 
tiffs evidently acceded to this suggestion and re- 
quest, although reluctantly, because on October 1, 
1943 in their proposal "as a disposition of our con- 
troversy" they ask for a reasonable extension of 
time to complete their contract, for the release by 
the city of some $16,000.00 balance due them on 
the portion of the contract known as the State 
Street Subway, for reimbursement of all storage 
and insurance costs on materials stored at the re- 
quest of the city and for payment on the basis of 
cost plus 15 per cent of all maintenance work on 
material or equipment furnished by plaintiffs. It 
is significant that after this proposal was made to 
the city, substantially all their suggestions were 



complied with by council order or authorization 
of the subway commissioner. 

Upon the facts related, the city takes the posi- 
tion that plaintiffs did not have the right to rescind 
the contract because the delay in the performance 
of the contract was due to the inability of the 
parties to obtain necessary priorities of a classi- 
fication sufficient to obtain critical materials; that 
defendant did not direct plaintiffs to stop all work; 
that the time for the construction of the work 
was extended by agreement of the parties; that 
plaintiffs' proposals for the extension of the con- 
tract upon their own conditions were accepted; 
that after the time for performance was extended, 
plaintiffs failed to make any offer of performance 
or demand that they be permitted to perform be- 
fore giving notice of the rescission; and that as 
a matter of fact plaintiffs were working continu- 
ously on the subway from November 30, 1942 to 
June 9, 1944, indicating that they did not at any 
time consider the letter of of November 30, 1942 
as a stop order which would justify a rescission 
for breach on the part of defendant. 

When the contract was entered into, the parties 
undoubtedly anticipated some delay due to the 
shortage of critical materials then being used for 
national-defense needs. Accordingly they inserted 
in section 13a of the contract the following pro- 
vision: "The Office of Production Management, 
Division of Priorities of the United States of Amer- 
ica, has assigned preference rating B-1 to deliveries 
of material which will directly or indirectly, at 
any stage, enter into the construction by the City 
of the Initial System of Subways, P.W.A. Project 
111. 1891-F. This preference rating is intended to 
be used only when the Contractor, with the ex- 
ercise of due diligence, is unable to secure any 
material, when required by this contract, without 
the use of such preference rating. The Contractor 
agrees that if any material cannot be secured, when 
required, without the use of such preference rat- 
ing, that he will use such preference rating and 
that he will be bound and carry out the require- 
ments set forth in the preference rating order, 
a signed copy of which the City will furnish to 
the Contractor if the Engineer shall have been 
satisfied that the use of such preference rating is 
necessary in order to carry out the requirements 
of this contract; all without limting the provisions 
of Section 13 of the General Specifications." Under 
this provision it was plaintiffs' first duty to attempt 
to obtain the necessary material on the open mar- 
ket before using a request for a priority. Plain- 
tiffs admit that applications were made by them 
on suitable forms for priorities from time to time, 
and plaintiff William Mathis testified that "every 
request that I made out for priority was in con- 
nection with an authority. I could not have gotten 
the material without a priority." After December 
1941 critical materials became more scarce, and 
it appears that plaintiffs could not get all the fans 
required under the contract. They obtained motors 
from Westinghouse Electric Company for the State 
Street subway, but could not get them for the Dear- 
born Street installation. Twenty-two ventilating 
fans that were to be installed in the Dearborn 
Street subway could not be obtained, nor 22 sets 
of electrical controllers. The lack of these items 
alone would have made it impossible for them to 
perform their contract by reason of governmental 
restrictions. The trial judge, in his oral opinion 
at the conclusion of the hearing, found that "these 
delays which resulted in this case, arose out of 
the inability to get priorities," and that "there 
is no evidence in the case that the City was derelict 
in any way in its duties in applying for priorities 



5750 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



January 20, 1950 



when requested by the contractor ***. Therefore, 
the Court finds as a fact that the delays have been 
due to inability to get priorities, that there is no 
evidence that the City failed in its duty to get 
priorities and the Court holds, as a matter of law, 
that the provisions of Article 15 of Plaintiffs' Ex- 
hibit 2 applied and that the contract was merely 
suspended during the period when materials were 
not available and the plaintiffs had no right to 
rescind." 

It is plaintiffs' contention that articles 14 and 
15 of the contract which provide for extensions of 
time, when read in connection with other sections, 
indicate that the delay or suspension of the pro- 
gram of the work within the limitation of the 365- 
day period, could be only upon written order of 
the commissioner stipulating the period of time of 
such delay, and they say that defendant never 
had any right to delay or suspend the work for 
any uncertain or indefinite period of time. In view 
of the court's findings, which we think are sus- 
tained by the evidence, this contention is untenable. 
In their complaint plaintiffs alleged that the "delay 
was caused by defendant failing to supply plain- 
tiffs with high enough priorities." The burden of 
proof rested upon them to sustain this allegation, 
and the court found, and we think properly so, 
that they failed to prove any fault on the part of 
the city in this regard. 

Aside from the foregoing considerations relating 
to delay caused by the shortage of critical mate- 
rial and to the construction of defendant's letter 
of November 30, 1942 as a stop order, more than 
18 months after it was written, and then for the 
first time used as ground for recission of the con- 
tract, we think that the offer of the proposals by 
the contractors for disposition of the controversy 
and the acceptance of the offer by the city evi- 
denced by its compliance with the various demands 
made, constituted an agreement between the parties 
which bound both of them to keep the contract 
alive until alleviation of the conditions caused by 
the war would permit the contractors to resume 
operations. The court will take judicial notice of 
the fact that all civilian activities during this 
period werq forced to abide the war effort, and in 
consequence delays were experienced in the per- 
formance of public and private contracts generally. 
It is not denied that on completion of the work the 
contractors would have had the right to present 
a claim for extra compensation, as specified under 
various sections of the contract, but instead of 
abiding their time plaintiffs insisted upon terminat- 
ing their agreement without the consent of the 
city, notwithstanding the testimony of William 
Mathis that "we were working continuously from 
November 30, 1942, to June 1944." In the light 
of the communications that passed between the 
parties and the conduct of plaintiffs, they were 



not justified in rescinding the agreement without 
first making an offer or demand to be permitted 
to further perform the contract. It has been held 
that delays in performance of a contract may be 
waived by conduct indicating an intention to re- 
gard the contract as still alive. Schmahl v. Aurora 
National Bank, 311 111. App. 228; Watson v. White, 
152 111. 364. "That there was such an intention on 
the part of plaintiffs is clearly evidenced by the 
circumstances hereinbefore set forth. It has also 
been held that after delays in performance have 
been waived a contract cannot be rescinded for 
failure strictly to perform without giving notice 
and a reasonable opportunity to perform. Plummer 
V. Worthington, 321 111. 450. No such notice was 
given by plaintiffs, nor did they in any way indi- 
cate that they desired a reasonable opportunity 
to perform prior to the rescission of the contract. 
We think this is an additional reason why they 
cannot recover. 

In view of these conclusions, other questions 
raised heed not be discussed. We are of opinion 
that the trial court properly resolved the issues 
in favor of defendant. Accordingly the judgment 
should be affirmed, and it is so ordered. 

Judgment affirmed.

"Act") ; and 

Whereas, the City is desirous of assisting and 
cooperating with the Local Authority in such un- 
dertakings and of complying with the provisions of 
Sections 10(a), 10(h), and 15(7) (b) of the Act, 
as well as all other applicable provisions thereof: 

Now, Therefore, in consideration of the mutual 
covenants hereinafter set forth, the Local Author- 
ity and the City do agree: 

1. Whenever used in this Agreement: 

(a) The term "Project" shall mean any low- 
rent housing hereafter developed as one 
operation by the Local Authority with 
financial assistance of the PHA and in- 
cluded within any Program Reservations 
issued to the Local Authority by the 
PHA which in the aggregate may not ex- 
ceed 40,000 units of low-rent housing. A 
Project will generally be located on a 
single site but may be on scattered sites. 

(b) The term "Taxing Body" shall mean 
the State or any political subdivision or 
taxing unit thereof (including the City) 
in which a Project is situated and which 
would have authority to assess or levy real 



or personal property taxes or to certify 
such taxes to a taxing body or public offi- 
cer to be levied for its use and benefit 
with respect to a Project if it were not 
exempt from taxation. 

(c) The term "Shelter Rent" shall mean the 
total of all charges to all tenants of a 
Project for dwelling rents (excluding all 
other income of such Project), less the 
cost to the Local Authority of all dwelling 
and non-dwelling utilities. 

(d) The term "Slum" means any area where 
dwellings predominate which, by reason of 
dilapidation, overcrowding, faulty ar- 
rangement or design, lack of ventilation, 
light or sanitation facilities, or any com- 
bination of these factors, are detrimental 
to safety, health or morals. 

2. The Local Authority shall endeavor to se- 
cure a contract or contracts with the PHA for 
loans and annual contributions, and undertake 
to develop and administer one or more Projects. 

3. Under the constitution and statutes of the 
State of Illinois, all Projects are exempt from all 
real and personal property taxes levied or im- 
posed by any Taxing Body; and, with respect 
to any Project, so long as either (a) such 
Project is used for low-rent housing purposes, 
or (b) any contract between the Local Authority 
and the PHA for loans or annual contributions, 
or both, in connection with such Project shall re- 
main in force and effect, or (c) any bonds issued 
in connection with such Project shall remain out- 
standing, whichever period is the longest, the 
City agrees that it will not levy or impose any 
real or personal property taxes upon such Proj- 
ect or upon the Local Authority with respect 
thereto. During such period, the Local Au- 
thority shall make annual pajonents (herein 
called "Payments in Lieu of Taxes") in lieu of 
such taxes and in payment for public services 
and facilities furnished for or with respect to 
such Project. Each such annual Payment in Lieu 
of Taxes shall be made in accordance with Sec- 
tion 29 of the Illinois Housing Authorities Act, 
as amended, and shall be in an amount equal to 
ten per cent (10%) of the aggregate Shelter 
Rent collected by the Local Authority in respect 
to such Project during the preceding calendar 
year; provided, however, that upon failure of 
the Local Authority to make any such Pajnment 
in Lieu of Taxes, no lien against any Project or 
assets of the Local Authority shall attach. 

The Payments in Lieu of Taxes shall be dis- 
tributed among the Taxing Bodies in accordance 
with Section 29 of the Illinois Housing Authori- 
ties Act, as amended; provided, however, that 
no pajrment for any year shall be made to any 
Taxing Body (including the City) in excess of 
the amount of the real property taxes which 
would have been paid to such Taxing Body for 
such year if the Project were not exempt from 
taxation. 

4. The City agrees that, subsequent to the 
date of initiation (as defined in the Act) of each 
Project and within five years after the comple- 
tion thereof, or such further period as may be 
approved by the PHA, and in addition to the 
number of unsafe or insanitary dwelling units 
which the City is obligated to eliminate as a 
part of the low-rent housing projects hereto- 
fore undertaken by the Local Authority and 
identified as Project Nos. ILL. 2-1, ILL. 2-2, ILL. 
2-3, ILL. 2-4, ILL. 2-5, ILL. 2-6, ILL. 2-7, ILL. 
2-8 and ILL. 2-9, there has been or will be elim-

ination (as approved by the PHA) by demoli- 
tion, condemnation, effective closing, or compul- 
sory repair or improvement, of unsafe or in- 
sanitary dwelling units situated in the locality 
or metropolitan area of the City substantially 
equal in number to the number of newly con- 
structed dwelling units provided by such Project ; 
provided, that, where more than one family is 
living in an unsafe or insanitary dwelling unit, 
the eliminaton of such unit shall count as the 
elimination of units equal to the number of fam- 
ilies accommodated therein; and provided, 
further, that this paragraph 4 shall not apply in 
the case of any Project developed on the site of a 
Slum cleared subsequent to July 15, 1949, and 
that the dwelling imits eliminated by the clear- 
ance of the site of such Project shall not be 
counted as elimination for any other Project or 
any other low-rent housing project. 

5. During the period commencing with the 
date of the acquisition of any part of the site or 
sites of any Project and continuing so long as 
either (a) such Project is used for low-rent 
housing purposes, or (b) any contract between 
the Local Authority and the PHA for loans or 
annual contributions, or both, with respect to 
such Project shall remain in force and effect, 
or (c) any bonds issued in connection with such 
Project shall remain outstanding, whichever 
period is the longest, the City, without cost or 
charge to the Local Authority or the tenants of 
such Project (other than the Payments in Lieu 
of Taxes) shall: 

(a) furnish or cause to be furnished to the 
Local Authority and the tenants of such 
Project (i) the public services and facil- 
ities which are at the date hereof being

other dwellings and inhabitants in the 
City; 

(b) vacate such streets, roads, and alleys 
within the area of such Project as may be 
necessary in the development thereof, and 
convey without charge to the Local 
Authority such interest as the City may 
have in such vacated areas; and, insofar 
as it is lawfully able to do so without cost 
or expense to the Local Authority and/or 
to the City, cause to be removed from 
such vacated areas, insofar as it may be 
necessary, all public or private utility 
lines and equipment; 

(c) insofar as the City may lawfully do so, 
grant such waivers of the building code 
of the City as are reasonable and neces- 
sary to promote economy and efficiency in 
the development and administration of 
such Project; and make such changes in 
any zoning of the site and surrounding 
territory of such Project as are reasonable 
and necessary for the development and 
protection thereof; 



(d) accept grants of easements necessary 
for the development of such Project; and 

(e) cooperate with the Local Authority by 
such other lawful action or ways as the 
City and the Local Authority may find 
necessary in connection with the develop- 
ment and administration of such Project. 

6. In respect to any Project the City further 
agrees that within a reasonable time after re- 
ceipt of a written request therefor from the 
Authority : 

(a) it will accept the dedication of all interior 
streets, roads, alleys, and adjacent side- 
walks within the area of such Project 
after the local Authority, at its own ex- 
pense, has completed the grading, im- 
provement, and paving thereof in accord- 
ance with specifications acceptable to the 
City; and 

(b) it will accept the dedication of all streets, 
roads, alleys and adjacent sidewalks 
bounding the area of such Project after 
the Local Authority, at its own expense, 
has completed the grading, improvement 
and paving thereof in accordance with 
specifications acceptable to the City; pro- 
vided, however, that the Local Authority 
shall not be required to perform or pay 
for any more work, with respect to such 
streets, roads, alleys and adjacent side- 
walks Isounding the area of such Project, 
than could be lawfully assessed against 
the Project site if it were privately 
owned ; 

(c) it will provide, or cause to be provided, 
water mains, and storm and sanitary 
sewer mains, leading to such Project and 
serving the bounding streets thereof (in 
consideration whereof the Local Authority 
shall pay to the City such amounts as 
would be assessed against the Project site 
if it were privately owned). 

7. If the City shall, within a reasonable time 
after written notice from the Authority, fail 
or refuse to furnish or cause to be furnished any 
of the services or facilities which it is obligated 
hereunder to furnish or cause to be furnished to 
the Local Authority or to any Project, then the 
Local Authority may proceed to obtain such 
services or facilities elsewhere, and deduct the 
cost therefor from any Payments in Lieu of 
Taxes due or to become due to the City in respect 
to any Project or any other low-rent housing 
projects assisted or owned by the PHA. 

8. No Cooperation Agreement heretofore 
entered into between the City and the Local 
Authority shall be construed to apply to any 
Project covered by this Agreement. 

9. So long as any contract between the Local 
Authority and the PHA for loans (including 
preliminary loans) or annual contributions, or 
both, with respect to any Project shall remain 
in force and effect, or so long as any bonds is- 
sued in connection with such Project shall re- 
main outstanding, this Agreement shall not be 
abrogated, changed, or modified without the 
consent of the PHA. The privileges and obli- 
gations of the City hereunder shall remain in 
full force and eifect with respect to each Project 
so long as the beneficial title to such Project is 
held by the Local Authority or some other public 
body or governmental agency, including the

COMMITTEE ON LOCAL TRANSPORTATION. 



Chicago Transit Authority Requested to Revise Sched- 
ules for Streetcar and Bus Operations. 

The Committee on Local Transportation submitted a 
report recommending that the City Council adopt a 
proposed resolution submitted therewith reading as 
follows : 

Whereas, The most frequent cause of complaint 
against the service on the Surface Division of the 
Chicago Transit Authority is the inconvenience and 
hardship to which riders are subjected by the 
switching back of streetcars and the turning back 
of buses at points short of their advertised desti- 
nations ; 

Whereas, This practice of switching back cars 
and buses is becoming so general that it would ap- 
pear the present management is attempting opera- 
tion on schedules that have been speeded up to a 
point where they cannot be maintained; therefore, 
be it 

Resolved, That the City Council of the City of 
Chicago hereby respectfully petitions the Chicago 
Transit Authority to revise its schedules for street- 
car and bus operations so as to make unnecessary, 
except in cases of real emergency, switch backs of 
streetcars or buses at points short of the destina- 
tions displayed on such streetcars or buses. 

On motion of Alderman Young the committee's rec- 
ommendation was concurred in and said proposed 
resolution was adopted.

5781 



Presented by 
ALDERMAN PACINI (10th Ward): 

Illinois Delegation in Congress Requested to Secure for 

Chicago Facilities for Operation of Seven Television 

Stations Previously Authorized. 

A proposed resolution reading as follows: 

Whereas, Chicago has always been a leader 
and pioneer in radio broadcasting and manufactur- 
ing and the many allied industries; and 

Whereas, Many Chicago residents are gainfully 
employed in said vocations and rely thereon for 
their livelihood, including technicians, actors, mu- 
sicians, scientists and advertising, management 
and research personnel; and 

Whereas, In the production and origination of 
programs for nation-wide distribution by net- 
works or otherwise, Chicago has been and remains 
in strong competition with the cities of New York 
and Los Angeles; and 

Whereas, Television is a new and recent devel- 
opment in this general field of broadcasting that 
promises to attain dominance thereof in the very 
near future; and 

Whereas, The importance of Chicago as a cen- 
ter of commerce and industry is evidenced by the 
selection of Chicago as the site for the first 
United States International Trade Fair to be held 
in August 1950; and Chicago should have its full 
quota of television broadcasting stations; and 

Whereas, Adequate television broadcasting fa- 
cilities are a basic essential to the growth and 
progress of all industries related to and dependent 
upon broadcasting; and 

Whereas, The Federal Communications Com- 
mission by regulation has allotted seven television 
stations to New York Metropolitan District, seven 
to the Los Angeles Metropolitan District and 
seven to the Chicago Metropolitan District; and 

Whereas, A sufficient number of applications 
were filed in each city to provide for the assign- 
ment of all allocated facilities; and the Commis- 
sion did issue authorizations to seven applicants 
in New York and seven in Los Angeles for the op- 
eration of said stations, but has issued only four 
authorizations for operation in the Chicago Me- 
tropolitan District ; and 

Whereas, The failure of the Commission to is- 
sue authorizations for all seven television stations 
in Chicago is attributed to a suspension of the 
processing of applications by said Commission 
pending a review of Commission regulations con- 
cerning television; and 

Whereas, In September 1948, when the Com- 
mission suspended its processing of applications, 
there had been pending for many months applica- 
tions for all the facilities allocated to Chicago; 
and 

Whereas, The Commission's review of its reg- 
ulations has developed into a complex and time- 
consuming procedure which will delay the com- 
mencement of further operations in Chicago for 
at least eighteen months and perhaps for another 
three or four years; and 

Whereas, It appears that the authorization of 
the three additional television stations already al- 
located to Chicago need not hinder a satisfactory 
solution of the issues the Commission is currently 
considering in review of its regulations; and 

Whereas, A delay of eighteen months to four 



years in the establishment of such additional fa- 
cilities will grievously injure Chicago industries 
and residents and will seriously, if not permanent- 
ly, impair the ability of Chicago to compete with 
its principal rivals in this field, and all of this 
without countervailing benefit to the nation as a 
whole; now, therefore 

Be It Resolved, That the Mayor of the City of 
Chicago be and he is hereby directed to advise the 
delegation of the State of Illinois to the 81st Con- 
gress that it is the sense of the City Council that 
all necessary and appropriate steps be taken to 
the end that authorizations for the operation of 
additional televison facilities in the City of Chi- 
cago, allocated by the Federal Communications 
Commission, may be issued forthwith. 

Be It Further Resolved, That the City Clerk be 
and he is hereby directed to send a copy of this 
Resolution to Senator Scott W. Lucas and Senator 
Paul H. Douglas, to each Representative from the 
State of Illinois in the 81st Congress, and to the 
Chairman and members of the Federal Communi- 
cations Commission in Washington. 

On motion of Alderman Pacini said proposed reso- 
lution was adopted.

Secretary of Navy Requested to Present Nazi 
Submarine U-505 to City of Chicago. 

Also a proposed resolution reading as follows: 

Whereas, The U-505, a Nazi submarine prowling 
the Atlantic Ocean for allied shipping, was boarded 
and captured by the United States Navy on June 
4, 1944, marking the first time that the American 
Navy has boarded and captured an enemy ship of 
war on the high seas since 1815; and 

Whereas, Numerous Chicagoans participated in 
this action, including the Commander of the task 
group, the Commanding Officer of the first vessel 
to go alongside the submarine, as well as other of- 
ficers and men of the task group; and 

Wheres, a proposal has been made, supported 
by many prominent Chicagoans, to bring the U-505 
to Chicago for permanent installation at the Mu- 
seum of Science and Industry as an exhibit of out- 
standing public interest and as a memorial to the 
many heroic fighters of the United States Navy 
who have given their lives for their country; and 

Whereas, Submarine warfare constituted a ma- 
jor factor both in World War I and World War II 
and still remains a vital part of modern warfare; 
and 

Whereas, The installation of the U-505 at the 
Museum of Science and Industry would permit 
many hundreds of thousands of persons to see it 
each year, thus drawing considerable attention to 
this phase of the war at sea and emphasizing the 
importance of maintaining a strong sea-going force 
for the protection of our country; therefore 

Be It Resolved, That the City Council of the City 
of Chicago do hereby make formal request of the 
Secretary of the Navy to present the U-505 to the 
City of Chicago for the purpose of installing this 
vessel as a permanent exhibit; and be it further 

Resolved, That the City Council authorize the 
Mayor of the City of Chicago, if and when such re- 
quest is granted, to appoint a committee of Chicago 
citizens to make whatever arrangements are neces- 
sary and to prepare plans for appropriate cere- 
monies attending its installation as one of Chica- 
go's permanent war exhibits. 

On motion of Alderman Wagner said proposed reso- 
lution was adopted.

ordinance, submitted with said report, for acceptance 
of a bid of Continental Illinois National Bank and 
Ti-ust Company for the purchase of four certain issues

On motion of Alderman Duffy the committee's 
recommendation was concurred in and said proposed 
ordinance was passed, by yeas and nays as follows : 

Yeas — Aldermen Budinger, Harvey, Carey, Cohen, 
Merriam, Bohling, Pacini, Wall, Kucharski, Egan, 
Vyzral, Murphy, Corcoran, Duffy, Pistilli, Janousek,

Nays — Aldermen Olin, DuBois, Wagner, Sheridan,

Alderman Janousek (seconded by Alderman Tour-.

vote. The motion was lost. 

The following is said ordinance as passed: 

Whereas, The ordinances authorizing three of the 
issues of bonds aggregating $12,000,000 for various 
public improvements hereinafter described provided 
that such bonds bear interest at the rate of iy2% 
per annum, which was the prevailing rate of in- 
terest upon such bonds at the time the elections 
were held where a majority of the electors voting 
upon the question approved such ordinances and 
the issue of bonds in the amount of $1,600,000 for 
voting machines hereinafter described bear interest 
at the rate of not to exceed 3% per annum; and 

Whereas, Money market conditions throughout 
the United States have materially changed since 
such elections were held, interest rates having in- 
creased upon all types of securities even to the 
extent of affecting the value of billions of out- 
standing U. S. Government bonds and drastically 
decreasing the market value of millions of bonds 
of municipalities that have been voted bearing a 
fixed rate of interest; and 

Whereas, The City Comptroller has given ex- 
tended publicity of the proposed sale of the four 
issues of bonds aggregating $13,600,000 hereinafter 
described by advertisement in Chicago Journal of 
Commerce, a newspaper having a general circula- 
tion in the City of Chicago, and in The Bond Buyer, 
a financial newspaper published in the City of New 
York, New York, such publication having been

made at least ten days prior to the date of such 
sale, so as to determine the market value of such 
bonds, and six (6) bids for their purchase have 
been received, all of which offers to purchase said 
three issues of bonds bearing 11/2 % interest are at 
less than the par value thereof, and the offers to 
purchase the issue of bonds bearing not to exceed 
3% interest are at not less than the par value 
thereof and accrued interest ; and 

Whereas, In order that the various improvements 
contemplated to be made from the proceeds of said 
three issues of 1V^% bonds can be made, it is nec- 
essary that such bonds be sold at this time at the 
best price obtainable as determined by the busi- 
ness judgment and good faith of this City Council 
and the other issues of bonds being for buying 
voting machines should be sold in order to comply 
with the order of the Supreme Court of Illinois in 
the case of People vs. City of Chicago entered 
March 24, 1949, 85 N. E. 2d 667: now therefore, 

Be It Ordained by the City Council of the City of

ment for the sale of said four issues of bonds ag- 
gregating $13,600,000 was made in newspapers
